    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone who enjoys writing. That's right, just ENJOYS it. Being a wiz with words isn't necessary, because the class actually helps you hone your skills and learn to be a better writer. It's fun, and you are only ever trying to outwrite yourself. What's nice is that you don't NEED a good first draft. In fact, it's preferred that your first draft is kinda shaky. Cam teaches you how to revise and polish anything you produce.

    Course highlights:

    Throughout the course, you do selections in fiction writing, poetry writing, and nonfiction writing. It's nice to get an overview of all three types; though they all use the same basic concepts, there are techniques that work better, for example, in poetry than in nonfiction. I learned to revise, revise, revise. The feedback I got from Cam (and my classmates) was priceless, and helped propel my writing to where it is today.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You MUST enjoy writing. It is, in fact, a writing course! Don't think you can get away with minimal effort. It is an easy class if you're willing to get your hands dirty (with ink, or graphite, however you prefer). Just write. Not everything you produce will be perfect; that's kind of the point! You're learning how to trim and plump it in just the right places for it to be a masterpiece.
